Hosea 11:1-3 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)
Israel Has Forgotten the Lord
11 The Lord said, “I loved Israel when he was a child,
and I called my son out of Egypt.
2 But the more I called the Israelites,
the more they left me.
The Israelites gave sacrifices to the false gods
and burned incense to the idols.
3 “But I was the one who taught Ephraim to walk.
I took the Israelites in my arms.
I healed them,
but they don’t know that.
